March 17, 2011 Holiday – St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland

St. Patrick’s Day is both a public and religious holiday in Ireland that commemorates Saint Patrick, the most commonly recognised patron saint of the country. St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated since the 17th century, and has gradually become a celebration of not only the arrival of Christianity in Ireland but Irish culture in general. On this day Irish people attend church services and parades, wear traditional green clothes and eat Irish food after Lenten restrictions on fasting and drinking.
